Elisabeth Auer - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
In Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy we explore unconscious processes and deeply engrained and internalised ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. By bringing these models into awareness, we can attempt to change them.
Elisabeth is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with 9 years of experience, and accredited with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and practices in English and German.
Many people who come for therapy are in a state of crisis. They often cannot understand why they repeat certain patterns of behavior, thinking or feeling over and over again. Many feel unsatisfied in their relationships and long for deeper and more meaningful connections with others.
In the way we tell our story - coherent, idealising ("I had a fantastic childhood"), detailed, patchy or dismissive ("There is not much to talk about") - we give information about the way we have been attached to earliest caregivers. The attachment patterns we have internalised may serve us to avoid deep feelings of loss or sadness. Only when we can understand why we behave, feel and think in the way we do, we can change these patterns. The secure frame of the therapeutic relationship allows us to explore our "true self" and try out different ways of relating to ourselves and significant others.
